Fun & Easy Snowman Craft {for Kids!}

Here is a cute craft you can make with your kids {or a classroom full of kids!} in little time and for little cash. Here is what you need to make snowman lollipop ornaments:

Supplies:

Flat Lollipops (I got a pack of 22 Christmas Pops at the Dollar Tree)

Markers (Red, Blue, Black)

Pink chalk (Or you can use cosmetic blushūüôā )

Cotton Swabs (ya’ know, Q-Tips)

Glue (white school glue for kids, hot glue for grown-ups)

Cardstock (several sheets of white for the faces and a scrap of orange for the noses)

Ribbon or string

1 3/4″ Round Scallop Paper Punch (you can use a plain circle punch, circle cutter or just freehand circles and they will be just as cute!)

Optional: Googlie eyes or sequins

 

Directions:

  1. Before you invite the kids to craft¬†have everything prepared! Punch plenty of scalloped circles and place markers out where all the kids can reach. Have squeeze¬†bottle of white glue out or little cups of glue with toothpicks¬†in them for kids. Place a stick of pink chalk on a paper towel and have several Q-Tips on the towel next to it. Make sure to have a few examples of the finished craft for the kids to see. Precut¬†the “noses” from¬†orange and have them out as well as sequins or googlie eyes for the eyes. Remember APB when you craft with kids: Always Be Prepared!
  2. Take a q-tip and rub it on the chalk and make pink cheeks on the snowman face (scalloped circle).
  3. Draw or dot a smile on the face with black marker.
  4. Glue on a carrot nose and sequins/googlie eyes for the eyes. Anything else you want to add is up to you!
  5. Adults only!!!¬†Place a small dab of ¬†low temp hot glue (you must use low temp glue gun or you will melt the plastic wrapper¬†on the lollipop)¬†on the wrapped lollipop and secure both ends of a 6″ strand of ribbon in the glue and press a snowman face on top.

Well, that was easy! My kids made 44 of these yesterday and they had a blast! This is a nice craft fair item too because they make up quick and are cute hanging on the tree and you can sell them for a quarter so little kids can afford them :)  I hope you can use this idea whe you are crafting with your kids (or grandkids) this year! Til next time happy crafting!
